Are Lab Grown Diamonds As Strong As Real Diamonds?

Hello, dear diamond enthusiasts! We all know and adore the timeless allure of diamonds. They’ve graced jewelry boxes and made grand appearances on fingers, necks, and wrists for centuries. But as we step into modern times, there’s a new player in the game – lab-grown diamonds. So, the burning question is, do they shine just as brilliantly as their natural counterparts?

What is a Lab-Grown Diamond?

Let’s unravel this sparkling mystery. Lab-grown diamonds are made through fascinating scientific processes, such as High-Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). At The Diamond Guys, both our natural-mined diamonds and lab-grown diamonds are showcased, letting you pick the jewel that truly resonates with your heart.

How are Diamonds Measured for Strength?

Diamond strength isn’t just about how they glint under the sun; it’s about their toughness and hardness. The Mohs Scale helps us determine this hardness, and here’s an interesting tidbit: natural diamonds top this scale! But how do the lab-grown ones fare?
